Now for the trick to your homemade whole wheat hotdog buns!!
Oil the counter surface and roll the dough 1/2" thick. Mine started rising really fast so I had to roll flat even while I was cutting!
Cut in strips. The Norpro cutter scraper is the best tool to do multiple jobs. In this case, cutting my bread dough.
Place side by side in fitted pan. You want the buns to rise upward, so you have them slightly touching which will force the dough to go upward rather than spread out. :) Only let them rise slightly as the bread dough will rise while in the oven and you don't want them to get really high.
Bake 350 about 20-25 minutes or until golden brown. Optional: glaze with butter to give it a shiny look. Cool and have a good hotdog with your fresh whole wheat hotdog bun!
Note from Paula: We used the new hotdogs from Oscar Meyer (found in local grocery store) that do not have any nitrites or additives. They are all beef and totally natural. They actually do taste good! This is speaking from a gal who never really liked hotdogs. Unfortunately, my family loves them so I try to get natural ones.
